Always check reviews of any laptop/netbook you plan to buy. You'll see everything from temperatures to battery life.

Today I done did got:

Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing - (PS3) - $28

Super Mario Galaxy 2 - $47.

I had a $5 coupon, see, and I decided that I saved $2 from Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing and $3 from Super Mario Galaxy 2. Totally my decision! I could have saved $4 from Super Mario Galaxy 2, but then that would mean I'd only save $1 from Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing and that just didn't seem fair. What are your opinions on this highly controversial subject?

No pictures because I am too lazy.

I think you should have pre-ordered Galaxy 2 from Amazon.. that $20 amazon credit was an amazing deal.

Sega racing is pretty cool, still doesn't measure up to Mario Kart imo but way better than shit like Madagascar Kartz.

It measures up and more. For one, it doesn't have Mario in it so that is +1 right there. Secondly it seems to have a lot more variety whereas Mario Kart is always very bare bones in the tracks, selectable characters and any extra modes. The only Mario Kart game I actually appreciate is the DS version. Well, the N64 version was pretty good, too.

I bought a few games from Amazon that gave a credit to your next perches. I ended up buying Metroid the Other M for $10.

You're just a Sega whore so you're obligated to favor the Sonic All-Stars.

Sega has more tracks but a lot of them feel exactly the same (especially the sonic, monkey ball & curien mansion ones) It does have a more varied soundtrack... but.. Mario has a better cast of characters, better power-ups & better weapons.

Plus, I want to break my PS3 everytime "concept of love" track plays on Sega Racing..

Understand.. Under.. Unda.. Understand..Understand.. Under.. Unda.. Understand..Understand.. Under.. Unda.. Understand..

Thats the first thing I unlocked was a new music track for Jet Set courses.

Pffft! I hate the Mario universe characters! Granted, some of the ones in the Sega game, like Billy Hatcher, are equally ridiculous. The Sega game seems to have more characters.

All seems about the same to me. In fact, it is less infuriating on the Sega game because the items in the Nintendo game are major cheats. Int he Sega game, you must actually be good at racing to win most of the time.

Jet Set Radio has always been plagued by shitty music. I know which song you are talking about and I have raced on a few Jet Set tracks so far, but the music wasn't that loud and I barely noticed the track. I don't even know where to purchase music. I know how to purchase characters and somehow I was able to purchase a new track somewhere, but that's it.

Nah.. The All-Star power-up is more of a major cheat than any pickups in Mario. You can easily go from last to first if you get that with some characters.

You buy the music/tracks/characters on the title menu screen under the "shopping" blade.

I like the Sonic game personally, I prolly just like Mario Kart more because of it's familiarity. Namely the boards. The Sonic stages are the only ones I really like a lot on Sega Racing. The Monkey Ball and Samba ones suck.

The Monkey Ball tracks only suck because of their probability of 90-degree turns. The Samba tracks are really cool. The Sonic tracks are the ones that I kind of find a bit boring. Back when I had the announcer turned on, he'd quip about how some other racer had an All-Star power up and just used it. Nothing seemed to happen. But I think that is more rare than the Blue Shell in Mario Kart.
